The King and Queen of Spain are to make their first State Visit since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia will spend two days in Andorra at the end of March on a trip that will cover education and culture as well as see the royals meet local politicians and dignitaries.
Felipe and Letizia will travel to Andorra, which Spain borders in the Pyrenees, on March 25th. They will be accompanied by Spain’s Foreign Minister, Arancha González Laya. The visit will last until March 26th 2021.
It’s the first State Visit from Spain to Andorra which is ruled jointly by the Bishop of Urgell in Catalonia and the President of France. The two day trip comes ahead of Andorra’s presidency of the Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government in April this year which King Felipe is also set to attend.
State Visits have been off the agenda for Europe’s royals throughout the pandemic. Travel between Spain and Andorra is permitted for work reasons.
